Drago's corn head features unique technologies that allows it to reduce shelling loss, says Drago's Dustin Bollig.
 
This is accomplished by several key features:

     -- Automatic, self-adjusting deck plates: The header's plates self-adjust to the size of each stalk. "As different size stalks come in, the spring is constantly making thousands of decisions for you," Bollig says.

 

     -- Knife rollers: The head includes the longest knife roller in the industry, which reduces grain loss and butt-shelling.

 

     -- Optional stalk chopper: The blades do not chop the stalk until the ear is removed, which helps reduce shelling loss.

 
Watch as Bollig describes the corn head:
